Whew....I'm glad the pants sold so quick. I was dangerously close to dropping more money on gear. I saw these pants within minutes of you posting them and I've been holding myself back from...

1) You may want to do something about those hiking pants. 17.5oz is really heavy, even for traditional pants. I have Patagonia hiking pants (GI 2 pants) that weigh 11.5oz and I want to replace them...

Silicon vs. Aluminum
Wow...nice muffins! So how does silicon stack up against aluminum? It seems like the silicone would be more durable and less likely to get damaged in your pack, but it also looks heavier. The Si...

Stuff Sacks
A bit off topic, but do your MLD cuben stuff sacks ship out quickly? Or does the 4-7 week wait also apply to these? Thanks.

Day Hike
I normally don't bring a stove, but it's not a bad idea. I would bring an alcohol stove rather than a canister because it's quite a bit lighter. With a canister stove, you are carrying ...

The simmering function of the FeatherFire seems really handy for baking. It would be interesting to see how they cook at full blast. The aluminum tin seems to do a great job reflecting the heat. Th...

Baking Muffins - MmmMmmmHmmm!
Today I decided to give baking some muffins a try in my kitchen, rather than experiment with something like this in the field. To cook the muffins, I used my FeatherFire alcohol stove (45g), a h...

Mountain Laurel Designs Cuben DuoMid
The DuoMid is the best shelter for solo hikers. Don't be misled by the "Duo" in its name - you could cram two hikers in here but it's poorly suited for that (ie. no vestibule space, ...

Spark-Lite Fire Starter (Survival Gear - BPL Gear Shop)

BPL FireLite Firestarter
I love this FireLite Mini. It's the only thing that I 100% trust to start a fire. With a mini Bic you can run out of gas, be at too high of an altitude, get it wet or get it oily. Matches can ...

This knife is a brilliant design. Every part of it is functional and the result is a lot of knife for just 22g (or 24.3g as mine as actually weighs). When I opened the (very nice) box and first played...
